Bilbo Baggins and his adventures truly live in this excellent radio production of Tolkien's timeless tale. As presented in all its glory by BBC Radio, this adaptation by Michael Kilgarriff features an original score by David Cain written for Renaissance instruments. The combination of script and music is outstanding. The cast could not be better. Each character is distinctly brought to life with excellent development and vocal distinction. The pace is comfortable. This audio selection will appeal to children as well as adults who have been on these adventures before. M.R.
